- Wedding: April 2015 - Miami, Fl
Hi all. 2 out of 4 of our groomsmen don’t drink. It seems like all of the gift ideas revolve around drinking! (Flasks, shot glasses, rocks glasses, etc…) So far the only thing I can think of is a personalized lighter with their initials on it. Please help us think of other ideas for our groomsmen! 🙂

We didn’t want to go the typical flask/drinking route, so we got the guys personalized cuff link boxes with their initials. They were from Pottery Barn.
They seemed to really like them. My husband has at least 3 flasks from wedding and NEVER uses them.

A new putter if they are golfers, a wallet, a watch, a shaving kit, a pocket knife, coffee of the month subscription (or any other “of the month”), something for their hobby like a fishing rod, football jersey
Think of what you would get them if it were their birthday and you weren’t trying to give them all the same thing.

This thread makes me realize how non-manly all of my friends are.

We did beautiful, hand made leather toiletry bags with first + last initial, among a couple other things. Found them on Etsy, I think they were around $65 or $70. We were also looking for something not entirely drinking-focused. The seller also had nice shaving kits in smaller leather bags. Good luck!

- Wedding: Petroleum Club of Houston
We ended up having custom bobble heads made for the groomsmen. My fiance wanted something that would be a lasting memory for his guys.

DH got his friends these awesome harmonicas… but maybe that’s a personality thing – they all loved them.
Also – he’s received an Art of Shaving kit and LOVED that too for a different wedding.

When my fiance’s best friend got married this past summer, he recieved a really nice large framed photo that we could hang in our home. The two guys (and myself) all went to college together, so it was a nice photo of the main hall on campus. Another groomsman recieved a framed photo of the city skyline where the groom + groomsman grew up. It was a bit of a nod to how the guys met, is a long-lasting gift, and didn’t imply drinking at all.
We’re considering personalized tie clips with each groomsman’s initials as a part of a gift for our wedding, which is similar to the cufflinks idea. But, we’re not set on anything just yet, so I’m watching this thread for other ideas! 🙂

I asked my husband for his perspective on this one. He said TOOLS were the best groomsman gifts he ever received. I think the last one was a wrench of some sort. Useful, easy to find, inexpensive, and doesn’t involve drinking. C’mon really now who actually carries a flask around these days, other than to sneak in liquor at the prom?

We did duffel bags for all of our Groomsmen and ushers. We have seen many of them use them too! We got them decent sized bags that could be used to go to the gym or for a weekend trip (men typically don’t pack as much! :)). We got them enbriorded and they were on sale so we spent like $30-35 per guy.
Edit: The reason we got them personalized (just initials) was because these men go on trips together for various things, and if multiple guys took them with them, they would know if it was theirs or not.
